[ARCHIVED] 09/30/16 Public meeting to be held regarding proposed Virginia Ave pedestrian improvements

Bristol, Tennessee City officials will hold a public meeting to provide information and gather input regarding a proposed Virginia Avenue Pedestrian Improvements project. The purpose of the improvement initiative is to install sidewalks, crosswalks, and ADA-compliant infrastructure on both sides of the street in the project area. The project would encompass a 0.5 mile corridor along Virginia Avenue, stretching north from the existing sidewalks at the BTHRA housing units to the intersection of Virginia Avenue and East Cedar Street. The City intends to apply for a Transportation Alternatives Grant through the Tennessee Department of Transportation to fund the project.

The principal goal of this improvement project is to provide pedestrian connectivity between the residential units south of Hazelwood Street and the Fairmount neighborhood. Additionally, this will create previously unavailable pedestrian access to the commercial shopping areas located on Virginia Avenue.

The public meeting will be held on Thursday, October 6th, 2016 at 5:30 PM in the Fairmount Elementary School cafeteria.
